The influence of the Bible on television cannot be overstated. Over the years, innumerable sitcoms, dramas, documentaries, and commercials have contained biblical content. Many shows on television, such as 7th Heaven (1996–2007) and Touched by an Angel (1994–2003) have explicit biblically based content. The first show features a minister and his family. The second show features angels helping people. Some television shows are not about the Bible per se, but have scenes or episodes that contain marked biblical references.
